Pink Sugar Cookies

To make your own homemade pink sugar cookies, you'll need basic sugar cookie ingredients, along with freeze dried strawberry powder and a few drops of pink food coloring.

Preheat oven to 350°F and start measuring out all your ingredients.

Cream butter, vanilla extract, 7-8 drops pink food gel, and sugars in your mixing bowl for 3 minutes.

Scrape down your bowl between steps to make sure all ingredients are fully incorporated.

Stop the mixer and add salt, baking powder, and baking soda as well as half of your eggs, freeze dried strawberries, and flour.

Mix for about 45 seconds on medium speed before stopping the mixer to add the remaining egg, freeze dried strawberries, and flour, beating again for 30 seconds. Add more food gel if cookies aren’t as pink as you would like.

Scoop small round portions of your cookie dough onto ungreased aluminum baking sheets, with about 2 inches between each of them.

Bake for 14-15 minutes. Transfer them to cooling racks after they’ve sat on the baking sheets 5 or so minutes outside of the oven and are firm enough to handle.

Eat and enjoy!
